from "Batman Forever" (1995)
About the Design
The H.R. Giger-inspired biomechanical theme of the Joel Schumacher "Batman" vehicles continued with this jet-powered cigarette boat. Used to assault The Riddler's floating fortress, the boat resembled a traditional speedboat more than the Batmobile looked like a conventional car -- or the Batwing looked like a viable airplane. But its organic ribbing, exposed innards and distinctive "batfin" put the vehicle squarely within the realm of Schumacher's psycho-sexual comic book fantasy world.
About the Kit
The Batboat was just one of a full series of Batman vehicles that Revell/Monogram released in conjunction with both "Batman Forever" and "Batman & Robin." All featured glossy black exteriors with plenty of internal and external chrome.
This model was built from an original 1995 issue.
